    • Reboots - Yay or Nay? / Okay or No Way?
      To me personally they are the plankton of cinema.  I mean have em if you want em but they really are the lowest.  If, at its best, cinema is an art form then reboots are the lowest because they are not so much an artistic endeavour as a business desicion.  Now I'm not stupid, i understand that cinema, hollywood cinema, it's about profit, you've got to turn over profit to be viable but hollywood is at its best when it balances the two, making money which is essential and also making a piece that actually says something/does something/offers something to the medium. If you really looked into how these films are made, if you were really privvy to the details of what goes on in the creation of these things, if you had a decent idea how little respect the people that make this shit have for the audience it'd really open your eyes.  It's about surveys and focus groups and judging cultural trends and then exploiting them.  Now, again, a lot of cinema is about that but the sheer tawdryness of the way they go about it, MASSIVE desicions are made in terms of plot, structure, whats in these movies, based on 'will this bump up sales based on appealing to such and such market', it's just deeply insulting, they treat the audience like rats hitting the feeder button for pellets.  Take this fuckin' new Ghostbusters bollocks for a start, there is something so cynical about it...and yet all these people get on one side or the other, as if it's a feminism debate or something when really it's just about exploiting a gap in the market that has been assessed by a bunch of number crunchers 'chick reboots are in this summer'...hooray for feminism.  It is just SO tiresome. There have been cynical eras in cinema, some of my favourites were very cynical, like the studio system but at the same time the studio system, though the structure, the monolith, the money men behind it were cynical the artists were anything but, they were men and women who fought within those constraints to give you some fucking outstanding cinema, these days it appears the 'artists' and money men are all in cahoots and there is an agreement there to forgo...well, just about anything in the name of further profitability.  Much like the music industry it has become a sort of machinery that is run by people who have no interest in the job they work in, these bean counters couldn't give a flying rats tail for cinema and its really quite tragic.  Now don't get me wrong, i believe in everything existing if there's someone out there to watch it but i do think that there should be a counter-balance, an alternative, a contingent whoose focus is on cinema and the advancement of.  If you really think about it, forgetting special effects for a moment, what advancements have there been in the medium?  I mean in the way films are constructed.  Literally from the inception of cinema right up until the 1980s there was HUGE advancement in cinema...it seems after that that all you get is sort of the artsy niche stuff and the rest has just stagnated, purely because there are no actual filmmakers out there really, pure filmmakers I mean.  Digitalisation, special effects, CGI, this stuff is all great stuff but it is nothing to do with the actual nuts and bolts of cinema and this whole reboot thing is just symptomatic of a total and complete lack of ideas in the medium anymore.
    • Who here likes every GNR song?
      I really love every song from (the real) GNR. There ist only one exception: my world. But I wouldn´t consider this a real GNR-Song, because the rest of the band didn´t even knew Axl put it on UYI until it came out.
